My Valentine’s Dinner Outfit with Roman Originals


I’ve been talking a lot lately about how Hubby and I are making a real effort to go out more and make more time for each other. Since the start of the new year we’ve made a pact to book our lovely babysitter, get dressed up and go out to dinner more together.

In the early stages of having our baby twins we hardly went out together at all…and even eating food together at home and talking to each other about non-baby things was a rarity. Our main focus in life was to look after our babies, who needed us so much at that time.

So with Valentine’s night coming up next week (plus it is our 10 year wedding anniversary too a few days later!) we are both looking forward to going out into town and enjoying a delicious meal – and a few cocktails together.

I therefore plan on getting dressed up and making an evening of it!

In this post I am wearing an outfit from Roman Originals, who offer affordable, flattering dresses, statement faux fur, beautiful blouses and knitwear for modern women. I went for this gorgeous black lace & pleated dress because the little black dress is such a timeless piece and will be something I can wear again and again.

This leopard faux fur coat is SO warm and incredibly on trend (everyone loves a bit of animal print in their wardrobe don’t they?), and this will look equally as good with jeans for my causal outfits.

The sizing on both garments are perfect for my normal size (I’m wearing a size 10 in both here).

Coat, Roman Originals // Dress, Roman Originals

This outfit is really quite dressed up for me. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll know that I spend 99.9% of my life in jeans and a big jumper, and that I am a huge fan of casual wear. However…if you can’t get properly dressed up and feeling a bit more glamorous for Valentine’s Day and your 10 year wedding anniversary celebrations…then when can you?!

If you love this dress too, or want to see more from their collection then check out Roman’s Valentine’s Day Dresses here.
